    • The module now makes full use of the Backup, Restore privilige and TakeOwnership so as an administrator you can edit permissions on objects that you do not have explicitly access to. Priviliges are enabled by default if the value 'EnablePrivileges' is true in the NTFSSecurity.psd1. The new cmdlets Get, Disable and Enalbe-Privileges are for manual control.
    • The Path parameter now works consistently
  • 2.4
    • Remove-Access did not remove Deny ACEs when using the pipeline (for example: Import-Csv .\access.txt | Remove-Access)
    • Add-Access did not remove Deny ACEs when using the pipeline (for example: Import-Csv .\access.txt | Add-Access)
    • The parameter Account was undiscoverable when using the pipeline

Reviews for this release

This was number two on my list to try out for a task I had, and it worked great! Thank you so much for the excellent tool!

Just needs some verbosity but is really a must have for admins... specially for setting bulk permissions on a fileserver

Extremely useful utility that easily integrates into my scripts. I just wish there was a documentation or better error messages. If you're looking to use Powershell to discover NTFS permissions, you NEED this module.
